The revelation came as a hacker group, which had previously released data suggesting the US agency may have been monitoring hundreds of IP addresses in Pakistan, released a new cache of information detailing how the agency accessed private and public networks in other countries, the Express Tribune reported.
The hacker group Shadow Brokers released a tranche of encrypted finds, which are now being decrypted by security researchers around the world. One such researcher who uses the Twitter handle, 'x0rz', uploaded files after decryption on Github, and confirmed the archive includes evidence of NSA operators' access inside the GSM network of Mobilink, one of the Pakistan's most popular mobile services provider, the daily said.
The hacking group had initially put up its data cache for auction in exchange for Bitcoin, however, a lack of buyers compelled it to release the data online.
